Encore: ANIMATED PORNOGRAPHY: HOW IT IMPACTS TEENS IN VIDEO GAMING
Recently, PornHub (the largest porn site in the world) released their 2018 data, and the findings are very concerning. Many of the popular searches in PornHub were video game characters created in a pornographic setting. For example, of the 33 BILLION porn video downloads, Fortnite and Bowsette (a Nintendo character) led the searches. Equally disturbing is the new trend of creating animated pornography parodies of these video games, which are being downloaded by the tens of millions. 5 of the searches were related to FORTNITE characters and 9 of the top searches were related to Overwatch characters. Many more were related to Marvel characters. The other significant revelation is that in categories viewed the longest, the leader is “Amateur” videos, something teens can create on their own just by using live-streaming apps. In this episode we will discuss the implications of this report for our teens who play video games which contain explicit animated pornography.
